The Pasadena Police Department launched the Mobile Command Post Curbside Coffee & Chat in 2013. We experienced overwhelming support and gratitude from our community members and partners. This year, the Community Services Section – Neighborhood Outreach Unit will be on the move once again in a concerted effort to meet and greet community members throughout the City of Pasadena. The Mobile Command Post Curbside Coffee & Chat allows Pasadena Police Officers, Park Safety Specialist, and support staff to meet the people we serve, make new friends and rekindle relationships.
The Mobile Command Post is being utilized as a highly visible and recognizable platform from which to host informal curbside coffee & chats with residents in neighborhoods throughout Pasadena. These informal meetings allow for neighbors and their children to step out of their homes and to be greeted at the curbside by uniformed officers operating the Mobile Command Post. It’s an excellent opportunity for neighbors to socialize and meet with officers and police volunteers while sharing information that can drive enforcement efforts and deter crime.
The Mobile Command Post has been deployed into many neighborhoods thus far and has been enthusiastically received by the community.
